ALBA-TCP solidarity is key to the freedom of Latin America and the Caribbean

The principles of solidarity and reciprocity are key to the freedom of Latin America and the Caribbean, stressed Antigua and Barbuda’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Immigration, Everly Chet Greene.

“With coordination, we can achieve common goals. Let’s be committed to the dreams and aspirations of the peoples,” said Chet Green, who urged the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America-Peoples’ Trade Treaty (ALBA-TCP) to promote the value chains and strengthening of businesses in the face of the COVID-19’s devastating effects.

On the commemoration of the Bicentennial of the Battle of Carabobo, on June 24, he underlined that liberation continues today, and highlighted Latin America’s and the Caribbean’s efforts in the defense of their sovereignty and self-determination.

Foreign Minister Chet Green stressed that “the path of freedom is in line with the Charter of the United Nations;” therefore, he urged to “face obstacles with the same determination and resilience” of Liberator Simón Bolívar’s in the Battle of Carabobo 200 years ago.

“The fight for freedom continues, and like Bolívar, we must continue on the path of freedom,” said Chet Green, who highlighted that Carabobo did not only become a symbol of freedom to Venezuela, but to all the Latin American and Caribbean peoples.
